Idealliance Introduces Comprehensive Online Print Planning & Estimating Certification Course Suite

Press release from the issuing company

New comprehensive certification for wide format, digital, offset, and flexo including real-world print planning and estimating & MIS.

Alexandria, Va. – Idealliance is proud to introduce Print Planning & Estimating, a comprehensive suite of online training and professional development courses for print professionals, teams, and managers. Idealliance is a non-profit think tank with 12 strategically located offices around the world. It is recognized by ISO as the foremost certifying body for competencies, systems, materials, and facilities and the world’s foremost contributor to ISO standards.

The new Print Planning & Estimating courses cover core planning and estimating concepts applicable to any print service provider environment, as well as specific instruction related to devices in digital, offset, wide-format, and flexographic printing. The all-inclusive Print Planning & Estimating Master course covers all concepts and print devices in a single offering at a very attractive price.

“The Print Planning & Estimating courses are highly interactive that incorporate a proven method for online learning success,” explains Idealliance Director of Online Programs and Evangelist Steve Ballinger. “The Instructor shows how to apply each concept step-by-step. The learner can then pause the instruction and solve a sample planning or estimating problem related to that concept. Once they have completed the answer, learners simply hit play and the instructor walks them through the correct process, so they can check their work and ensure they have a complete understanding before moving on to tackle the next concept.”

Noting that the courses feature “a ton of supporting materials, from supplemental videos to real-world application demos with MIS software, helpful templates, and documents that can be printed and used immediately,” Ballinger says the courses “make it almost impossible not to rapidly improve your skills in essential planning and estimating principles that are critical to a Print Service Provider’s profitability and the learner’s own personal development.

Special pricing has also been announced to make the courses available at an attractive price to anyone in the world. Each individual course is $149 and the Master course is $199, but individuals and teams can take advantage of a 75% off pre-launch rate and get the courses for only $37 each or $49 for the Master course.

The Print Planning & Estimating courses, as with all Idealliance eLearning programs, include a final online Certification Exam, which, when passed with a score of 80% or more, awards the learner recognition as a Print Planning & Estimating Professional.
